July 18 (Thursday) - July 21 (Sunday)
BFRO organizers bring participants to areas where
they will have encounters with Bigfoots at night. The odds of
success depend on their selection of locations, among other
things. Selecting the best locations depends upon
sighting/encounter information -- the more, the better -- so the
BFRO selects organizers who have the most information in a given
state, and who have experience organizing trips there.
The main organizer in California is Robert Collier. He's
a police officer from Southern California who knows the most reliable places in the state for a
sasquatch encounter. He can take credit for many successes over the
past few years.
Collier will be joined by Mike Poole and Ed Sosinski. Many credit
all three of these guys for taking them to their first sighting of a
real sasquatch. They will show you what they have recorded and
collected on their expeditions. They often have extra thermal camera
you can use, but you should consider buying a
one for yourself beforehand.
Robert takes a limited number of "newbies" (non-members) each year
because most attendees are "repeaters" who have been attending his
trips for years. He is picky about who he allows to participate. You
can be a first time camper but you need to be well-equipped for
camping. Fortunately you can still buy a lot of solid camping gear at
Walmart for less than the cost of two nights in a big city hotel these
On some BFRO trips some people (often those from Europe
and UK) fly to the US with just a duffle and carry-on. They rent a car
and drive straight to a Walmart where they buy all the camping gear
and the food they need for the trip. And then they give away all
that camping gear at the end of the trip. They save lots of money that
way ... campared to a resort vacation in the US.

There is a relatively high density of sasquatches in California
but only in specific regions ... Most parts of California have none.
The most dependable areas for sasquatches in California:
1) The coastal mountain ranges north of
San Francisco and west of Redding.
2) Parts of the High
Sierras (Sierra Nevada Mountains).
On some expeditions Robert hits spots in Nor Cal, on others
he leads his group to spots in the High Sierras. If you register for
this expedition you must be prepared to go to either region because
the location might change beforehand depending upon conditions and access.
Both areas are reliable sasquatch zones.
